Repeat pattern & motif paper cuts for screen printed textiles (Aug 2017) — Overview

The art of folding and cutting paper lends itself to almost any style be it geometric, abstract,  floral, illustration or cartoon. We will be exploring this art as a way to create a stencil for printing textiles.

We will look at ways of using paper cuts to make a repeat pattern or a single motif and will then use those paper cuts as stencils to print onto fabric. Students will create 1 or 2 colour printed square or squares of fabric suitable for a headscarf or large handkerchief.

The session will proceed as follows:
Introduce ourselves and the workshop,
Show some examples followed by demonstration.
Drawing
Paper cutting
Printing
Second paper cutting either a second design or second colour.

If you have some sketches/ideas for patterns please bring these along. If you have fabric that you would like to print on please bring this along – it should be white or a light colour, light-medium weight cotton or linen (no silk or wool please). Additional fabrics will be provided.
